Within databases you can find the academic literature that provides the theory and evidence to support your analysis and justifications. Library databases:
The Journal Articles page on the Human Resources Management Library Resource Guide provides a list of relevant journals and databases.
Visit the Business Journal Databases listing for all potentially useful databases in your area. Note that you don't have to use every database for every assignment - but nor should you restrict your search to one database only.
When you go into a journal database you will notice that many of them feature multiple search boxes that are stacked one above the other in rows.
While they may look intimidating, they can make your search process easier.
Think of each row as a train of thought. For example, if you were searching for an article about bullying in the workplace, you could use a new row for each element of your topic. In this case you might search for:
1st search row: "workplace harassment"
2nd search row: bully* OR abuse
3rd search row: ethics
You'll notice we have used some search tips in the search above. Check out the Search Strategies page for a listing of these tips.
Tip: If you want to learn more about how to maximise your search using search strategies, contact the Library. We can assist you in creating an effective search strategy.
